Because you are starting with a centosplus kernel and cplus kernels
are already customized, you do not have to go through the
customization part of the wiki instruction.  In your case, all you
have to do it to remove one patch.

I see the patch to be removed is this one:

Patch24883: linux-2.6-sound-alsa-hda-driver-update-for-rhel5-5.patch

Therefore, look for the line:

%patch24883 -p1

and delete it (it is line 9753 in the current kernel). If you had
already modified the .spec file, I suggest you start fresh. The only
other change you would want to make is "buildid" to provide a unique
name for your new kernel.

Good luck!
